After discovering that my weight was causing most of my leg pain and my neurologist told me I needed to lose weight, I decided to make my health a priority again.
Last week, my starting weight was...184.7 lbs.
This week my weight is...
I'm trying to not be too discouraged...
There were some positive things over the course of the last week...
My diet soda consumption is going down. I have replaced some of it with diet Snapple. (Though I need to get going and have more water)
I didn't have ANY chocolate or ice cream in the past week - which I haven't been able to say in a very long time.
My fruit and veggie intake has gone way up.
My activity level is starting to go up as well.
SO WHY DIDN'T I LOSE WEIGHT THIS WEEK?
I'm thinking my portion sizes are way off still. And, while I hate counting calories and measuring stuff out, I am going to try to do it for a few weeks just to get back into understanding portion control. I dusted off my SparkPeople account and will be logging everything in there.
Not losing weight this week is super disappointing but I didn't gain anything which is good I guess, right?
Hopefully persistence will pay off and I will see a nicer number on the scale next Wednesday.
